2006 and 2007. They could've used vacuum and converter it to a digital output display. Maybe the owners manual would explain each bar's relative MPG.

Yes, you could either choose "Large Text" or "Normal Text" for the display (for the average buyer's age ) I will admit, that it helped somewhat around town, but with the big V-8, you either coasted and got all 5 bars, or gave it some gas and had 1-2 bars. Highway cruising was variable on the display.

You're right, at least it was some feedback. You just have to get out of "Cops" driving mode when you cruise around in it
